The themed flat in Canongate is inspired by J K Rowling’s hugely popular Harry Potter series and boasts a wide array of magical furnishings to give visitors the full wizarding experience.

But muggles hoping to bed down under its floating candle ceiling will need to put themselves on the waiting list after it emerged the first available slot is not until mid-July next year.

The flat is the brainchild of self-confessed “huge” Potter fan Yue Gao, who previously explained she wanted to give each of her apartments a different theme.

Fancy renting a Harry Potter themed flat in Edinburgh?

She said previously: “Harry Potter is the collective memory of a whole generation, it will be an everlasting theme. And the connection between JK Rowling and Edinburgh is so inseparable.

“I poured all my heart into it, and I will continue to add to the apartment to keep it as special as possible. Guests love the theme and attention to detail.

“I might do another one in 2018, this one would be more Slytherin and more witchery.”

Despite the listed nature of the historical building, the flat comes with all the mod cons you could ask for such as TVs, a PS4, an Xbox 1 and WiFi.
